The composition of the Fibopost makes it a extremely good insulator which makes the post especially attractive to electric fence construction eliminating the cost of insulators. The Fibopost is hydrophobic ( repeals water) as the post is the insulator with a large insulating distance between wires and ground the Fibopost provides the best insulation .
In traditional electrical fencing configurations, contamination-caused insulator breakdown is a leading cause of fair weather reduction in performance of electric fences in calm weather conditions, late at night or early in the morning. Failures and performance reduction are initiated as leakage current flowing over a wet contaminated surface . The pollution region is composed of both airborne contaminants (salt, dust, etc.) and moisture. Wind is the mechanism by which contaminants are deposited on the insulator surface. Contamination levels can continue to grow over time unless abated by natural cleaning mechanisms, like rain or heavy dew.
Where as the Fibopost will not allow the build up of material and due to the hydrophobic nature self cleans . As the Fibopost also flex's in the wind or even a light breeze any material or contamination is consistently being shaken off the post keeping it clean and as the best insulator .
